Washington manager assaulted after trying to defend a black bartender from slur-hurling racists

Published

A bar manager in Spokane, Washington was trying to defend his coworker from bigots yelling the n-word at him last week — and became the target of the racists’ ire.

As Washington’s KHQ station reports, the manager, Jade Cardwell, was sticking up for a black bartender against two unruly customers before the situation escalated to violence.

“Right away, when they came in, they were dropping the N word,” Cardwell said. “We have a black bar tender we just employed. We weren’t having it. We wanted them gone.”

Cardwell said that normally when customers want to take it outside, bartenders at his restaurant are allowed to follow them to the door and then close it behind them once they exit — but the men physically dragged him by his clothes before he could do so.

“One of them ripped my hair out, ripped my shirt,” Cardwell said, as they dragged him towards their car.

“Two 6ft tall guys came into our bar, used hate speech, ripped a chunk of hair out of my head, tore my shirt off, punched a coworker in the face, broke my nose and pulled a knife and threatened 6 of us that we were gonna get stabbed,” Cardwell wrote on Facebook.

“I’m going in for surgery today,” he told KHQ earlier on Wednesday. “They have to put my naval cavity back together.”

On Facebook, Cardwell said that despite informing the Spokane Police Department immediately of the assault, he felt that “the officers were not interested,” and said they still haven’t found the men, who had Idaho plates. He provided police with security footage of the men and their plate numbers.

Cardwell said he is “sleeping about an hour or two a night, [has] constant headaches, can’t breathe out of my nose due to the fact that my septum is displaced in the nasal cavity.”

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, members of the National Security Council under Donald Trump no longer uses their extensive knowledge of international relations, politics, and history to formulate foreign policy security proposals for the president's review -- and are instead using the president's tweets to make policy based upon his desires and social media proclamations.

The report begins with noting that council members are often handed printouts of the president's tweets when they convene and are expected to use his words as their guide to formulate proposals that will likely find favor with the president.

Internet heaps praise on CNN’s Anderson Cooper for his ‘must watch’ destruction of Rod Blagojevich

Published

on

CNN's Anderson Cooper received near-universal praise across the board for what one commenter called his "fiery rebuke" of recently paroled former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Friday night that culminated in the CNN host telling him excuses for why he should not have been in prison were "bullsh*t."

During the highly-contentious interview, Cooper came armed with facts and did not let Blagojevich get away with comparing himself to political prisoner Nelson Madel a which drew a smirk and rebuke from the CNN host.

Many on Twitter were quick to point to the interview as one all cable hosts should look at as a way to stop guests who go on shows to lie with no pushback.
